Litter Infringement Fees

To help keep Hauraki District clean and free from litter, Council has introduced an infringement fee for littering, through the Litter Act 1979. Litter Control Officers can issue infringements for the dumping of rubbish in a public place or on private land without the occupiers consent.

Fee Litter Infringement Offence
$100 Depositing non-dangerous litter of less than 1 litre by volume in a public place, or on private land without the occupier's consent.
$200 Depositing non-dangerous litter from 1 to 20 litres in volume in a public place, or on private land without the occupier's consent.*
